Welcome Inside The Media Mix.
I encourage your blog comments and hope you will join the discussions. As a new blogger, I am working hard to build an audience and engage visitors with solid content. Every blogger loves to see Moderate Blog Comments so I’ve been reluctant to have a stated Blog Comments Policy (we sure don’t want to DIScourage readers from commenting).
Have you added a Blog Comments Policy?
I’m having a blog management problem that I must get under control. Some visitors commenting on this Blog are using their keywords as Author. There are 97 comments on a post right now awaiting approval. These blog comments aren’t Spam – that’s a whole ‘nother file. These are just folks (or computer programs) that want to put their keywords in place of name to get a keyword backlink to their website. It’s sad because our "Do-Follow" website uses KeywordLuv which posts your name AND keyword phrase with a backlink.
Blog Link Juice for Commenters
When I converted my blog to WordPress self-hosting, I included lots of Blog Link Juice for commenters. It saddens me that some who are posting aren’t taking advantage of it (or are confused as to how to use it … we’ll get to that in the next post) … and some are trying to "cheat the system" and abuse our Blog (aren’t there always some in every crowd). First things first: Name is required for comment approval. SEO backlink wizards: don’t just start making up names to get comments approved; I also check each URL link so you will be wasting your time as well as mine. Does your Blog have this commenting problem … or am I just a spam and black-hat SEO magnet? (drum roll, please ….)
Blog Comments Policy:
- This blog is moderated and all blog comments are reviewed before approval.
- Post commenter must leave at least their first name so we know you aren’t a machine.
- Blog comments cannot be linked to inappropriate or strictly commercial websites.
- Off-topic or ‘canned" comments will not be approved. Please mention a Keyword from my post.
- All links within the body of the comment will be removed.
- Anything added to our website may be edited or removed by the blog owner.
- Blog policies are subject to change as needed.
Please share your thoughts with us.
I’ve got treats for those leaving Comments!
This blog uses CommentLuv (link to your latest blog post) AND KeywordLuv which is simple AND powerful. In the Name Field type Your Name@Key Word Phrase (example: Linda Yarbrough@Media Marketing Strategy). KeywordLuv lets visitors know your interests and they click through to your website or Blog. SEOs love it because Search Engines favor sites with targeted incoming anchor-text (keyword phrases) linked back to your website. Give it a try now.
